    Biker falls ~ 30 ft, fractures skull, hip @ High Rocks

    Went for a ride with a friend there yesterday morning. The number of park rangers and local police in the area was unusaul, but I thought perhaps they were just out to enforce park regs (no alcohol, etc) on Memorial Day.

    As we climbed up the road toward the trailhead, we saw another police vehicle blocking access to Tory Rd. Then we ran into a pair of hikers who said there was a search being conducted for someone named Matthew.

    Surprisingly, we saw almost no people on the trail. Just a couple families with kids out for the day. No rescuers, police, rangers or anything.

    We rode our usual route, and heard a helicopter hovering overhead for a while. When we returned to the lot where we started afterwards, we could see that it was a medivac chopper. The strange thing was that even after he was found and was being evacuated, local police and fire personnel were closing all entrances to the park.

    Didn't see any coverage on the local news last night, but I did find this story:

    Moral? Wear a helmet, and be careful out there!
